    Looks better than Jeep Swanson did with his "green" skin in Batman & Robin! Let's hope he'll wear his Wrestling style mask like in the comics along with his Venom tubing system.

    Bane's got a nice sports car. Maybe he'll be one upping Bruce in more ways than one. ;)

    @c-a-r-t-m-a-n@superman81@daniel-bristol@skywise@iamfratson@bawnian-dexeus@diaigma@cupid@shuabert@thrashnasty190 Just so you guys know, All the tattoos you frequently see him with the set of his films are ACTUALLY HIS tattoos. Those are actually his personal tattoos and not ones put one for film roles.

    i very much doubt that this is on the set of TDKR. he's still sporting the same tattoos he has in 'warrior'. go watch a trailer for it and you'll see for yourself.

    yea that car is bad ass!!! i think Nolans Bane will be much more modern but he will still be a force to reckon with!!! I see him kickings Bale's ass all over Gotham

    @insertusernamehere i agree, Nolan'a take on the Batman is a much more realistic version so i am really looking forward to see his take on Bane and all the others.

    I don't know much about Bane, but based on these pictures, I'm assuming Nolan's taking a mob approach with the character. That's probably as muscular as he will be, which is still really massive.

    I highly doubt Bane will be as muscular as he is in the comics.

    Now that I think about it, with the white tape on his hands, maybe its outside of the studio for Warrior or something. Iunno. I'm bored. :p

    @bawnian-dexeus Haha...I was wondering if that was Bane's car in the movie or if it's Tom Hardy's actual car.
